To ensure the safe provision of water and sanitation it is necessary to have effective and efficient institutions. This paper investigates the institutional changes in the urban water supply and sanitation sector in Latin American countries as different generations have sought to find the best approach. The study focusses on Salvador in Brazil, covering the period 1853-1990. It is thought that with some differences due to local peculiarities, the pattern in other Latin America countries has followed a similar process.
